Mike Cane pointed this review out of the Onda V919 Air 3G, it’s the first V919 Air CH review online and normally I wouldn’t read these reviews specially from a Chinese forum. But at least it’s not from the Onda forum. And since I never plan to review this tablet unless Onda sends it to me, it’s worth a look.
Interesting to note the Atom X5 Z8300 is running 4GB. But only in single channel, so not 2 x 2GB LPDDR3 chips. So around 70-80% less memory bandwidth. The Z8300 only supports single channel I think which is why. The 3DMark11 score he got is about the same as my Onda V820w CH X5 Z8300 I have gets, the extra RAM hasn’t given it a boost which is odd, but maybe due to that single channel of ram.
I love it how the review only focuses on positive and did it throttle? No idea! The reviewer only checked the external temps of the tablet after 3 minutes of load! Another free tablet from Onda for a glowingly positive review without any negatives mentioned? The whole reason this site exists after I read a Voyo A1 tablet review in English from Gadgets China dot com type of site (I won’t mention names) which gave the tablet a glowing review, so like a fool I bought it. Turns out the site is run buy a Chinese guy and written in English with an English pen name to look like a western site. And what I received was a piece of crap that you had to press hard on the screen to even get it to register touches.
Which is why I decided to review Chinese tablets since all I found was fake reviews everywhere online…
